Adaptive Schools Foundation Seminar
June 18, 19, 30 & July 1
In order to harness the power of sustainable school improvement, school leaders must first manage their organizational “attitude” and focus on building a collaborative culture. The Adaptive Schools model empowers schools to identify their unique barriers to change and to work together to create a professional learning community focused on increased student achievement.
Join this four-day workshop to learn why this model has been hailed as “life-changing” and served as the “a-ha moment” for educators leading change in schools across the country. Only a few seats left!
Phenomena: Teaching Science in the Next Gen Framework
As the new Next Generation Science Standards become implemented, do you and your team have questions regarding the new science standards? What they mean for your students? Are you wondering how to implement them into your classroom instruction?
Join science teachers from around the state at our three-day workshop to explore the tenants of the Next Gen framework. Here, you’ll examine how these principles intersect with quality teaching practices, student engagement and formative assessment to transform the way your students learn about science.
Teachers will leave this workshop with a deeper understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards’ framework, sample models to use in their classrooms, and hands-on activities that motivate students to explore science phenomena. Register Today!
Time to gear up and train like you’re prepping for your next marathon! The state has selected the SAT as our new college assessment and the race is on to prepare students for success on the new test. This Couch-to-SAT preparation workshop will push your limits, test your speed and ultimately provide your team with the knowledge they need to successfully transition students to the new test.
This one-day workshop provides educators with an SAT-transition roadmap, helping participants to navigate the ins and outs of the assessment. Participants will explore the similarities and differences between the ACT and SAT, make connections between the SAT and state standards, and create a training plan to prepare students for testing success.

Cognitive Coaching Foundation Training
August 12-13 & 19-20
We know that implementing the changes necessary to reach your school improvement goals is not easy. Excellence cannot be mandated and behavior changes cannot be demanded.
At IEE, we rely on the Cognitive Coaching method to facilitate change in schools by mediating adult thinking and learning. While coaching provides teachers and school leaders with a “thought partner” as they apply new learning and changes to their practice, it is Cognitive Coaching that systematically changes educator practice and ultimately improves educator effectiveness.
At our four-day workshop you’ll learn how to use Cognitive Coaching as a model for working with your teachers and school leaders to establish a culture of high expectations, where trust and respect serve as the foundation for your school’s long-term success. Register Today!
Cracking the Code: Sparking Student Engagement
Managing student behavior and providing students with meaningful learning opportunities can be as elusive as Bigfoot himself. Today’s students are emerged in technology. Textbooks and novels can hardly compare to the 3-D games and virtual realities of student free time. The secret to capturing and keeping your students’ attention lies within well-orchestrated, highly-engaging instructional strategies that hold all students accountable for learning.
Join educators from around the state at this two-day workshop designed to help you “crack the code” on the mysteries of student engagement. You’ll leave with dozens of research-based, easy to use strategies that will transform your classroom into an organized culture of learning. These strategies can be implemented into all grade levels and content areas, and support a wide-range of instructional topics, including: literacy, mathematics, comprehension, classroom management, transitions and many more.

The Big Bang Theory: The Science and Art of Teaching Excellent Lessons by Design
Creating excellent learning opportunities for all students requires teachers to possess high levels of knowledge and skills. The Big Bang Theory will walk educators through a step-by-step process to expertly blend the science of teaching (data and curriculum) with the art of teaching (relationship building and engagement strategies). In this Sheldon meets Penny experience, teacher practitioners and school leaders will study how master teachers navigate the relationship between the concrete and abstract elements of instruction in order to maximize student success.
Participants will examine how data collection, analysis and usage inform all aspects of instruction, including content, process and product. Common Core integration will be paramount. The examination of these elements of effective instruction will inform a comprehensive process for lesson design that integrates both the science and art of teaching. This seminar will guide participants to discover the often mysterious artistic elements employed by distinguished teachers in order to profoundly impact their effectiveness in ensuring all students succeed.
